Casdagli Cigars continues to expand its reach in Europe, announcing a distribution agreement with Fyxx, an e-commerce platform that specializes in boutique wines and rare spirits in addition to cigars.

Fyxx will begin offering a selection of Casdagli’s portfolio via its platform and then expand it to its new retail location that is slated to open in Amman’s Swefieh Village in May. Among the selections being offered are the Grand Café and Cotton Tail violas of Casdagli’s Traditional Line, along with the Mareva Spalato No. 2 and the Cabinet Selection Rosetta Maduro, the latter of which is a new line that was announced in February.

The first shipment has arrived at Fyxx’s facility and distribution has begun within the market.

Casdagli has also added distribution in Belgium and Norway this year, as well as Angola.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
